A Woman Packing a Glock Confronts Beto Over His ‘Evil’ Confiscation Plan: ‘Hell No, You’re Not!’ (Video)

I can’t imagine anything sillier than the idea that taking guns away from people who obey the law — that is to say, making sure only criminals have that firepower — could possibly result in improved safety.

It’s not just short-sightedness; it’s a complete lack of the most basic consideration of the particulars, in my view.

But apparently, not everybody agrees with me. Listen to that group cheer like it’s goin’ outta style:

But the idea’s got other critics.

At an event in Aurora, Colorado Thursday, Beto Confiscate-O was confronted by one — Lauren Boebert, owner of Shooters Grill.

The mom of four countered O’Rourke’s “Hell yeah” with her own:

“Gun-owning Americans who heard your speech and heard what you had to say regarding ‘Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15s and AK-47s’ — Well, I am here to say, ‘Hell no, you’re not.’”

The crowd wasn’t much for it.

Still, she called Beto’s plan “evil”:

“I would like to know how you intend to legislate evil because it is not the gun, it is the heart of the man that does that. We all have stories. Excuse me.”

The nay-sayers were naying like Mustangs. But their horsin’ around couldn’t put a hitch in her giddyup.

And if you’re wonderin’ about Shooters Grill, by the way, it’s a place where the waitstaff practices open carry:



As The Denver Post put it, “The award-winning barbecue comes with a gun on the side.”

That’s who was holding the mic, who wasn’t fazed by the boos.

Beto still tried to assist: “Let’s allow her to finish. Please, please, please, please.”

Lauren laid it out:

“We all have these stories. We all have these experiences. I was living in Aurora during Columbine. I had just recently moved when the Aurora shootings happened. Yet I have very close ties here. Yet all of those people were there defenseless. They had no way to defend themselves against a crazed shooter, so I want to know how you intend to legislate the hearts of men and leave American citizens like myself, American mothers. I have four children. I’m 5 foot zero, one hundred pounds, cannot really defend myself with a fist.”

She can’t? Lauren must not have seen any movies in a while. As Hollywood’s been mercilessly committed to showing us lately, if she’d only just punch a 200-pound man with her Kermit the Frog arm, he’d fly 10 feet back. After all, men and women are athletically the same.

But the chick thinks she needs a gun. Therefore, as reported by The Washington Free Beacon, Lauren told a man in the audience she was packin’ a Glock.

His response?

“Well, you shouldn’t have that.”

She went on to reference Beto’s past (dropped) burglary charge:

“We all know that you, sir, have a criminal history, and I understand that burglars do not like armed defense. Burglars do not like armed defense, yet that is a right that we have that shall not be infringed in America.”

The restaurant owner recounted an experience wherein a man was beaten to death in an alley near her business:

“He lost his life that night, and it kinda shook me up. I was there alone a lot and I thought, ‘What am I gonna do? What am I gonna do if something happens? What if somebody comes in here? My husband isn’t here to protect me. I’m all alone.’ And really, that’s what got me to open-carry.”

Shortly thereafter, her waitstaff wanted to do the same.

She continued:

“We’ve become a voice for the Second Amendment, and it’s a voice I’m proud to have. There are so many voices darkening the Second Amendment, and I’m proud to be a part of those standing and taking their place and saying, ‘No, we rightfully own our firearms and we’re responsible with them.’”

Enjoy the video above.

“She’s Hollywood”: AOC’s Primary Challenger Is Fired Up, Says ‘Squad’ Leader Is Absentee Congresswoman

Westlake Legal Group BadrunKhanFoxNews-620x348 “She’s Hollywood”: AOC’s Primary Challenger Is Fired Up, Says ‘Squad’ Leader Is Absentee Congresswoman washington D.C. The Squad progressives Politics North Carolina New York Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post elections democrats Culture Congress Campaigns Badrun Khan AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 2020 Primary 2020 Elections 2020

Queens activist Badrun Khan, a Democratic primary challenger to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY-14), speaks on Fox News – 9/19/19. Screen grab via Fox News.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stunned political observers in June 2018 when she defeated longtime Congressional Rep. Joe Crowley in the NY-14 Democratic primary. Since that time, she’s been given non-stop fawning media coverage, is treated like a queen by radical progressive activists, and her endorsement has become a must-have for any staunchly liberal/socialist Democrat running for election or reelection.

But while several Republicans announced their intentions earlier this year to run for the opportunity to battle her in the 2020 general election, you only heard murmurings and anonymous reports about potential Democratic primary challengers.

Until now.

Queens activist and Democrat Badrun Khan has thrown her hat into the ring, and appeared on Fox News Thursday to talk about her candidacy. She also explained why she thought Ocasio-Cortez should be a one-term Congresswoman. Here’s what Khan said:

Activist Badrun Khan, who is challenging Ocasio-Cortez for the Democratic nomination to represent New York’s 14th Congressional District, said the media darling is not doing enough to represent her constituents.

“She is Hollywood and Washington,” said Khan, the daughter of Bengali immigrants.

What’s more, she said the worldview of Ocasio-Cortez is not indicative of their Queens constituency, claiming: “They aren’t looking for socialism.”

Khan also blasted AOC for an issue we’ve read about in the New York media before: allegations that she’s an absentee representative.

“She’s never in the district. She’s not sure what’s happening in the district. She opened her [district] office pretty late after she was elected,” said Khan.

The “Government Reform” section of her website contains this not-so-veiled swipe at Ocasio-Cortez:

“Congressional Representatives fall in love with media and Washington DC and fail to represent the District they promised to serve. Badrun will never lose sight of who sent her to Washington and who she is responsible to.

In addition to criticizing the freshman Congresswoman on Fox News for her role in Amazon canceling major expansion plans in New York City that would have brought in 25,000 jobs, Khan also questioned the Green New Deal and some of AOC’s other pet issues due to their high cost:

Khan said she wants to enhance Medicare and Social Security but appeared to take a shot at “Medicare-for-all” — a plan championed by progressives like Ocasio-Cortez.

“I am not a politician, I am a mother,” Khan said. “Everything is easier said — how is it going to be done?”

Watch her interview below:

Though AOC was a bartender before she was elected, she did have some political background. She was a volunteer for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2016 primary campaign against Hillary Clinton, and she also interned for the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA).

From what I’ve read about her, Khan has no political background outside of being an activist in her community (which is not a bad thing).

She definitely will have an uphill battle to win the primary, considering AOC’s connections and money machine, but stranger things have happened.

It would be nice for a Republican to win the district but it’s heavily Democratic, so whoever wins the primary will win the general election. While I’m not a Democrat and don’t support Democrats, one who Republicans could work with and who seems to have a decent degree of understanding about fiscal responsibility would be much more preferable than the politically opportunistic drama queen who represents NY-14 now.

CNN Speaks To Voters In What’s Always Been A Democratic Stronghold In MN; He Hears The Unexpected

Westlake Legal Group minnesota-620x408 CNN Speaks To Voters In What’s Always Been A Democratic Stronghold In MN; He Hears The Unexpected Ilhan Omar Front Page Stories Featured Story Eveleth Mayor Robert Vlaisavljevich elections donald trump democrats CNN's Martin Savidge Allow Media Exception 2020

 

The Iron Range in northern Minnesota has been deep blue forever. CNN’s Martin Savidge traveled to this rural area to speak to voters and found that many of them plan to cast their vote for President Trump. Savidge tells viewers:

Once a Democratic stronghold, many of the voters we talk to here say more and more, they align with the President. This is mining country. Not coal mining, but taconite, a mineral used in making steel. Forty or fifty years ago, the Iron Range, as it’s called, was booming bringing big city prosperity to small towns like Eveleth.

Savidge asked the town’s mayor, Robert Vlaisavljevich, “Are we talking thousands of people sort of shifting and changing their politics?”

“Yes,” answered the mayor. “Oh, yeah…Things were just going gangbusters, businesses all over. Then when it crashed, everybody was caught by surprise. It crashed hard.”

Savidge narrates: The number of mining jobs in the region went from over 14,000 in the 1980s to just about 4,500 today, leaving families and main streets to suffer.

Vlaisavljevich has been the mayor of Eveleth for eighteen years on and off. He votes Democratic in state races. But he’s got a Trump sticker on his desk, a Christmas card from the President on his bulletin board and the deer on his office wall sports a MAGA hat.

Savidge asks, “The political support for the President, part of that is just survival?”

The mayor replies, “Economics…He’s our guy. He supports mining. He’s our guy.”

Savidge spoke with a couple, perhaps in their fifties. The man said, “Her brothers were staunch union Democrats for years and they’re not anymore.”

Savidge tells viewers that “Trump’s tariffs on imported steel are popular. So is his easing of environmental regulations. They also like his crackdown on immigration.”

He shifts gears. “In a state that’s 80% white, the influx of Somali refugees has been a contentious issue. Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar is a controversial figure here.”

The mayor said, “She offends a lot of people.”

“Savidge says, “she’s not popular here.”

“No, not at all,” responds the mayor.

“Folks here say they didn’t leave the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party left them.”

Minnesota has voted Democratic in most presidential elections since 1932. Nixon won the state in 1972. Since then, no Republican has prevailed in the state. Not even Reagan in 1984.

In 2016, Trump came close, but lost the state by 1.5%, or 44,765 votes out of nearly 2,700,000 cast. It’s possible, with even a small shift away from the Democratic Party in the rural areas, that Trump could carry the state in 2020. And I’m sure he will try.

Watch the video.

As Predicted, that Trump-Ukraine “Whistle-Blower” Story Just Blew Up In Epic Fashion

Westlake Legal Group AS As Predicted, that Trump-Ukraine “Whistle-Blower” Story Just Blew Up In Epic Fashion quid pro quo Politics No Corruption Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story fake news Election donald trump democrats Blown Up biden 2020

What do I win?

Earlier this morning, I wrote a piece predicting that this story about Trump and Ukraine, supposedly involving a quid pro quo and an investigation request into Joe Biden, would blow up. The centerpiece of this was Biden being on tape bragging that he threatened to withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees if Ukraine didn’t fire a prosecutor. That prosecutor just happened to be going after his son’s company. Just a coincidence, I’m assured.

Here’s the tape of Biden.

Somehow though, this became a Trump scandal because a supposed “whistle-blower” claimed that the President had pressured Ukraine to investigate Biden’s very apparent corruption. I know, it makes no sense, but that’s how it works in the age of orange man bad. Somehow being on tape extorting a country wasn’t a big deal, but Trump wanting an investigation into it by our ally was impeachable. The media immediately went into leak and supposition mode, claiming that Trump had threatened the new Ukrainian President by withholding of $250 million in military aid they desperately needed.

This was it we were told. It was the scandal that would finally bring Trump down. And then, like always happens, more information started to trickle out that countered the hysteria.

Per The Wall Street Journal.

President Trump in a July phone call repeatedly pressured the president of Ukraine to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden ’s son, urging Volodymyr Zelensky about eight times to work with Rudy Giuliani, his personal lawyer, on a probe, according to people familiar with the matter.

“He told him that he should work with [Mr. Giuliani] on Biden, and that people in Washington wanted to know” whether allegations were true or not, one of the people said. Mr. Trump didn’t mention a provision of foreign aid to Ukraine on the call, said this person, who didn’t believe Mr. Trump offered the Ukrainian president any quid-pro-quo for his cooperation on an investigation…

And there it is. There was no quid-pro-quo. He did not threaten to withhold military aid. He simply asked several times on a single phone call for them to look into it. He never even called back to press the issue further. None of the nonsensical gnashing of teeth we heard all day about this supposedly being an impeachment bombshell is true. A President asked an ally to investigate corruption that Biden himself admitted to on tape.

Some still can’t let this go though. We have certain conservatives of the anti-Trump bent asserting that the President didn’t actually have to say the words to be asking for a quid-pro-quo. Actually, yes, yes he does have to say the words. Especially when we know the military aid went through anyway despite no investigation being opened by Ukraine. The idea that we are now going to go after Trump based on suppositions of what Ukraine should have deemed from a perfectly legal request is asinine.

Look, I realize some had a lot invested in this, but how many times must they learn this lesson? How hard is it to wait 24 hours and see what else comes out? If a story fits a partisan narrative too perfectly, it’s probably not true or lacking context.

The other thing I’m hearing is that even if this wasn’t illegal or impeachable, it was still wrong because he asked a foreign leader to help him in a way that would benefit him politically. Frankly, I could not care less. These are the new rules. In 2016, the Obama administration went after the Trump campaign based on what they claimed were legitimate suspicions. We have Biden on tape. I’d say that’s a legitimate suspicion. Further, the DNC used Ukraine to get dirt on Paul Manafort. The Hillary campaign hired a foreign spy to build a dossier of opposition research on Trump. So spare me the moral lectures on using foreign sources.

This is politics, not religion and the only way you gather information on corruption by opponents in foreign countries is by using foreign sources. Democrats, the media, and some anti-Trump Republicans do not get to change the rules all the sudden when they don’t benefit them anymore. The precedent was set in 2016 and they will be made to live by it.

Meanwhile, the scramble is on to try to salvage what little is left of this story exploding in their faces. We’ll get all the usual excuses and claims that even though Trump didn’t do it, he’s still bad. The Washington Post will push out a dozen editorials all saying the same thing. The song and dance never changes. For all practical purposes though, this story is dead and done as far as Trump goes.

Biden’s involvement on the other hand? That story will only grow.

People are Freaking Out Over Rudy Giuliani’s ‘Pants [Pooping] Panic’ Under the Gun with Chris Cuomo

Sometimes everything just gets all messed up.

On Thursday, Chris Cuomo questioned Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani as to whether he personally asked Ukraine to investigate former VP Joe Biden with regard to pro-Hillary 2016 election interference.

Rudy said he didn’t. Just a brief bit later, he replied that he “of course” did.

Clear?

The interview, as described by The Daily Caller, “devolved into a series of arguments and insults.”

No wayChris Cuomo engaging in arguments and insults? You mean this guy? (language warning):



Yep, dadgummit — apparently, it’s true.

Here’s the Biden botch:

Rudy explained that he asked Ukraine to investigate allegations which “tangentially involved Joe Biden in a massive bribery scheme.”

The yes/no response quickly resulted in the Twitter hashtag #RudyGiulianiMeltdown.

People flipped over it.

Tom Gara of BuzzFeed News had this to say:

“There’s no better expression of the hell that is CNN’s nighttime reality TV lineup than Chris Cuomo noting at the beginning of this clip that his Giuliani interview had been going for 28 MINUTES.”

On Friday morning, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski suggested the former mayor of New York might’ve been sloshed:

“You guys were talking about the madness and, sort of, I don’t even know if there’s inebriation here. What is going on?”

Here’s more of the tussle:



Bradley P. Moss — national security lawyer — lamented Rudy was at one point, well, just look:

And Talking Points Memo Editor Josh Marshall just wrote, “HOLY SH** this is wild!”

And there was this:

But international affairs specialist Tom Nichols’s reaction took the cake. Or expelled it:

Rudy’s a fiery guy, and there’s no more inflamed a topic than the terrible 2016 election — the night which, as we all know, factually proved there’s a ceiling for women in politics (here). Don’t Democrats want it investigated ’til the cows come home?

After all — Hillary ran “the best campaign, [she even became] the nominee, and [then had] the election stolen from [her]” (here).

Although, to be fair, not everybody’s on board with that idea:

But that guy’s probably sloshed.

Mark Zuckerberg Admits Pro-Abort Zealots Labeled Live Action as #FakeNews Now We Need a Permanent Fix Not Permanent Excuses

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg arrives before a joint hearing of the Commerce and Judiciary Committees on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, April 10, 2018, about the use of Facebook data to target American voters in the 2016 election. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)

Back in August, Facebook hit the Pro Life group Live Action with sanctions for allegedly spreading “false news.” As issue was a video produced by Live Action that said abortion is never medically necessary. This is factually true. (We can have a whole discussion on ectopic pregnancies some other time, thanks.) Facebook used two hyper advocates of abortion to fact check the video, they did not ask for an opinion from pro-life ob-gyns of anyone from the Catholic hospital system as a balance. As a result, Live Action’s ability to share posts was limited and the shares it did make were flagged saying that Live Action was known for spreading false information.

Live Action is no fly-by-night group. They have over 3 million followers on Facebook and are a major player in the fight against abortion, so this got the interest of a lot of people. Four conservative senators Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz, Kevin Cramer, and Mike Braun sent Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg a letter protesting the action.

Facebook removed the sanctions on a temporary basis.

Yesterday, Zuckerberg met with Hawley. Hawley, as you know, has been in the forefront of struggle to keep the tech giant from acting as a hit squad for those who would stomp out the ability of conservatives to use social media. It produced a pretty amazing result.

This is significant. I wouldn’t have expected Zuckerberg to do the right thing and divest Instagram and WhatsApp…I think it will take the Federal Trade Commission and a battalion of red-fanged anti-trust lawyers from Department of Justice to make him see the light there… but rather than the usual “mistakes were made” weasel words, Zuckerberg admitted that biased fact checkers used their position of power to take out an opponent and that the problem is systemic.

This should be a clarion call for anyone who values liberty. While a huge organization like Live Action can get the attention necessary to overturn a decision by Facebook, most publishers can’t. If RedState, for instance, ran afoul of Facebook in that way, we’d face the loss of a significant amount of our traffic and we would most likely end up folding. No platform should have that power. If the market doesn’t exist for your crap that is one thing, when a company decides that it will not let your existing market to have access to your product, that is something different. And while the “muh principles” bunch has a cow at that idea of using the force of the federal government to break these information cartels, the fact is that we either have rights or we don’t and it matters not one whit whether those rights are choked off by the federal government or if the federal government allows corporate oligarchies to abridge those rights. The preamble to the Constitution states that the government exists to “establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.” If we stand by an let a corporate monopoly to do us what our ancestors would not allow King George III and parliament to do, then it is possible that we really deserve the serfdom that comes our way.

Here’s the Biden botch:

Rudy explained that he asked Ukraine to investigate allegations which “tangentially involved Joe Biden in a massive bribery scheme.”

The yes/no response quickly resulted in the Twitter hashtag #RudyGiulianiMeltdown.

People flipped over it.

Tom Gara of BuzzFeed News had this to say:

“There’s no better expression of the hell that is CNN’s nighttime reality TV lineup than Chris Cuomo noting at the beginning of this clip that his Giuliani interview had been going for 28 MINUTES.”

On Friday morning, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski suggested the former mayor of New York might’ve been sloshed:

“You guys were talking about the madness and, sort of, I don’t even know if there’s inebriation here. What is going on?”

Here’s more of the tussle:



Bradley P. Moss — national security lawyer — lamented Rudy was at one point, well, just look:

And Talking Points Memo Editor Josh Marshall just wrote, “HOLY SH** this is wild!”

And there was this:

But international affairs specialist Tom Nichols’s reaction took the cake. Or expelled it:

Rudy’s a fiery guy, and there’s no more inflamed a topic than the terrible 2016 election — the night which, as we all know, factually proved there’s a ceiling for women in politics (here). Don’t Democrats want it investigated ’til the cows come home?

After all — Hillary ran “the best campaign, [she even became] the nominee, and [then had] the election stolen from [her]” (here).

Although, to be fair, not everybody’s on board with that idea:

But that guy’s probably sloshed.

So Good: The Babylon Bee Levels California After They Add Iowa to Their Growing Travel Ban List

If you live in either a red or purple state, chances are it’s been subjected to state-funded travel bans from solidly blue states like New York or California.

Oftentimes these bans are in response to actions taken by state legislatures who are trying to ensure religious freedoms and/or the rights of women and children (including the unborn) are not infringed upon by militant left wing groups who are paid big bucks to sue businesses and states into oblivion for failure to comply with their radical agendas.

Such is the case for Iowa, which was added to California’s travel ban list earlier this month by state Attorney General Xavier Becerra:

California announced last week that it has added Iowa to the list of states on its ever-expanding “travel ban” list because of that state’s new prohibition against funding gender-transition surgeries under Medicaid.

The announcement by state Attorney General Xavier Becerra means that as of Oct. 4, California will no longer offer taxpayer-funded trips to Iowa for any public employee or student at a state-run university.

Becerra’s authority came from a 2016 California law signed by then-Gov. Jerry Brown that bars state-funded travel to other states that undercut LGBT rights. The blacklist already included Alabama, Kentucky, North Carolina, Texas, Oklahoma and Mississippi.

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds responded appropriately to the news:

Gov. Kim Reynolds on Wednesday countered California’s announced ban on taxpayer-funded trips to Iowa by touting the state’s “nice” image as a welcoming place and urging disenchanted California businesses and residents to consider relocating to the Midwest.
[…]
Asked Wednesday about California’s planned travel ban, Reynolds said: “I think the Iowa story is my response. We are knocking it out of the park when it comes to a pro-growth, pro-business environment with opportunities.”

By contrast, she said, California is “heading in the wrong direction” with businesses “fleeing” a climate of rising taxes, “skyrocketing” costs to live and do business, and the “highest homeless population” in the nation.

“They’ve got a lot of issues going on in California,” Reynolds said.

Iowa is the 11th state to be added to California’s travel ban.

Perhaps the best take on the ban outside of Sen. Ted Cruz’s comes from the Babylon Bee, which quipped that other states were “begging” to be added to California’s travel ban list:

While just eleven states are currently on the list, dozens more are applying. Soon, almost every state except Oregon and New York will be on the list, and peace and utopia will break out across the nation as CA politicians will no longer be able to go there and say weird things and do even dumber things.

The states were disappointed to learn that the ban didn’t include all Californians, but they said banning just the politicians was a good start, since they’re the ones who ruined the state to begin with.

NBA Legend Charles Barkley Slams Democrats for Only Talking to Black People ‘Every Four Years’

I like NBA legend Charles Barkley. He’s a guy who says what he thinks and doesn’t really care how anyone feels about it.

Not so long ago, that was called “strong.” These days, I believe it’s called being an insensitive jerk. For a significant other, that’s probably accurate, but when it comes to national personalities, to a point, I prefer the previous interpretation.

And on Wednesday, Charles had strong words for Democrats.

Speaking to Michael Smerconish on SiriusXM, the sports icon recalled his efforts for Doug Jones during the 2017 race against Republican Roy Moore.

Barkley explained that he pledged Doug his assistance but ripped Dems in general:

“I said ‘Doug, I’m going to support you. I’m going to try to get every black person in Alabama to vote for you.’ And it worked out. We won for the first time in 40 years. But I said, ‘We need to start holding you Democrats accountable’ because they’ve been taking black people’s votes – and they only talk to black people every four years. All of these politicians only talk to black people every four years because they want their vote.”

And they offer nothing:

“Oh, actually, the Republicans don’t, the Democrats do. But when they get elected, they do nothing in the four years in between.”

The Alabama man also asserted Trump supporters are being wrongfully characterized as racist:

“I don’t think everybody who voted for Trump is racist … I think some of them are, but I don’t think everybody who voted for Trump is racist. But this thing started way, way back. When we started shipping all our jobs overseas many, many years ago, it was really going to have a negative effect in the long run; you notice now that all these malls and places are closing because people are doing all their shopping online, that’s going to have a negative effect … that’s not the President’s fault.”

The power forward doesn’t like talk of race being inserted where it doesn’t belong. He made that clear in January of 2016, when he accused ESPN of extreme goofiness in its framing of the Broncos/Panthers game, featuring white quarterback Peyton Manning and black QB Cam Newton:

“ESPN has already started their crap about black versus white, good versus evil—and I know a lot of those fools over there got radio talk shows. … It really annoys the hell out of me. We really just can’t appreciate the greatness of Peyton. And, clearly, Cam is on the track to become one of the greatest players ever. You can already see them framing this narrative ‘black versus white, good versus evil.’”

He said race sells:

“The best way to make talk radio good is to make it racial. … I hate bringing up the race card because there’s more important race stuff, but race does have something to do with it. There is a racial component, but I hate talking about that because we, as black people, we got way more important things where race is a factor than something silly like sports.”

As for “more important things,” when Doug Jones toppled Roy during the special election two years ago, Charles told CNN he was proud of Alabama, but he also grilled Democrats then as well, saying they needed to “get off their a**”:

“I’m so proud of my state. I love my state. We got some amazing people here. Yeah, we got a bunch of rednecks and a bunch of ignorant people, but we got some amazing people here and they rose up today. … It’s time for [Democrats] to get off their a** and start making life better for black folks and people who are poor.”
